Temperature sensor

September 17, 2009

Onset has introduced the new TMC6-HE air temperature sensor, the latest addition to the company’s line of external sensors for energy and environmental monitoring.

Designed to be ideal for a range of energy monitoring applications, from monitoring the efficiency of solar thermal systems to tracking building energy use, the sensor’s copper-plated probe ensures high-accuracy measurements and faster response time than previous models. The sensor can be easily attached to water pipes, hot water storage tanks and boilers, and is compatible with a number of Onset HOBO U12 USB data loggers.

For plotting and analyzing temperature data, Onset offers HOBOware® software, an intuitive graphing and analysis software package for PC and Mac computers. HOBOware provides a user-friendly graphical user interface that enables users to quickly and easily graph, analyze and print data files, as well as export the data to Microsoft Excel and other spreadsheet programs.

The TMC6-HE temperature sensor is priced at $35 and is available immediately from Onset. HOBO U12 data loggers are priced from $85, and HOBOware software is priced from $45. Visit http://www.onsetcomp.com for more information.
